Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from a small town in Upstate New York and then
ventured to New York City to study Illustration in college. I loved
both places: my home town for the abundance of nature, hiking and
open skies and the city for all it's diversity in people, food, and
Eleven years ago I moved out to Tucson looking for a city that
could offer me both aspects of my these places and while it took a
little time to grow on me, I have learned to love the area.
I love the outdoors (except snakes, Indy and I share that). I try
to get out and hike at least once a week and camp as often as I
can. Tucson is an excellent base from which to travel, I've
discovered. I love spontaneous road trips and with San Diego, Santa
Fe, and the rest of Arizona less than a days drive, it's rare my
weekends are boring.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wearing glasses prevented me from being an astronaut and so I went
into the arts. I've been tattooing for over 8 years and
illustrating for nearly 15. Art has me continually learning new
things and exploring new concepts and I couldn't be happier. My
schedule allows for a fair amount of free-time when I want it and I
fill it with hiking, trips to the zoo or museum, catching a movie
or checking out what's new downtown.
I've also been trying to get myself a pet Stegosaurus, but the
permitting process is very difficult.
I’m really good at

foods. Also, parallel parking.

is that I'm tall. Seriously, I've asked people and that's the first
thing they usually say.

Art and random things that pop into my head. Zeno's Paradox, Greek

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually hanging out with friends at one of our houses watching
movies, doing art, and cooking.
Occasionally we'll hit downtown and go to a bar. I don't usually do
loud clubs or bars though, I prefer conversation to loud thumping
clubs where I can't hear you.

something I've said intrigues you. If you have something to say, or
are curious what I have to say. If you're killing time waiting for
the oven to preheat. You like the smell of a rainy day. Really,
there are lots of reasons. "Just because" is totally okay with me.
